Keira Knightley debuted her new angled bob at the at the Chanel show during Paris Fashion Week. When I first saw Keira’s cut, it totally took me back to college when I had the same cut. As did two out of three girls in my large liberal arts college. Obviously, Keira looks about a trillion times better with the hairstyle, but I can’t help but see that dated cut when I look at her–shorter in the back (or ever shaved!) and longer in the front. And as my girl Kelly from Gouldylox Reviews pointed out when we were discussing this on twitter yesterday, it might be the zig-zag part that’s pushing it over the edge.
I do like Keira with short hair (she looked amazing with a pixie) but I am not totally sold on this bob. I don’t like how it hits right at her jawline:
… But mainly I’m just having flashbacks of my own bad haircut. Please fashion gods, don’t let this haircut turn into a trend again! It is not flattering on most people, even if it makes Keira looks phenomenal, as always.
What do you guys think of Keira’s new cut? Yay or Nay??
